I have had a couple of people ask me what they should wear to a photo shoot so I thought it would be an idea to make this the content of my first blog!
My aim is to present you with beautiful and timeless images, you do not want the pictures to date quickly by the clothes you are wearing.
Here is what I recommend;
Wear solid colour clothing – patterns/stripes/florals/logos can be very distracting.
Choose muted, subdued tones.
Choose clothes that suit the location.
Choose 1-3 colours for your group that work well together, ones with similar tones.
Choose a top with sleeves (arms take up more skin area than your face and will distract from the subject) The same premise applies with skirts/shorts – men should wear trousers and women should wear trousers or a skirt past knee length.
Choose dark socks (unless barefoot) as white can be distracting.
Keep jewellery simple and minimal.
Do hair and make up the way you normally do, you do not want to be unrecognisable!
Follow these guidelines and your pictures will be great!
